The world of audio headsets is an extremely competitive market. There are some 20+ brands that I can think of right away, and so, for a brand to enter such a domain is a rather brave journey. We've seen the likes of ARCTIC recently tackle the audio market with confidence and conviction, and there is no reason why a successful brand like ASUS cannot compete against the rivalry. They are a world-wide corporation that delights in delivering quality goods in an awful lot of genres.

This week I've been lucky enough to be reviewing an exciting new ASUS product to be launched under the gaming headset market, the CineVibe headset. This new audio peripheral makes use of 'Rumble Feedback'. Used enhance the listening experience in a multitude of environments - games, movies and music.
